Took the rubber for Mac N Seitz on Friday afternoon and threw well, showing advanced pitchability with stuff to pair. Fastball played in the upper-80s, touching 89 mph, and playing around the zone. Power slider at 77-78 mph with swing-and-miss spin, flipped in a more bendy 71-73 mph curveball and landed it for strikes. Turned over a 79-82 mph changeup, too. A name-to-know arm that’s still on the market in Kansas.

Hudson Alpert SS / Regis Jesuit, CO / 2026

Lean, wiry 6-foot-1, 170-pound frame. Currently the No. 2 overall prospect in Colorado’s 2026 class and No. 222 nationally.

Lean, wiry frame with plenty of room for physical projection to come. Saw playing time on the IHSA 4A state champion Edwardsville Tigers as a freshman this past season. Highly advanced defensively with silky smooth actions on the dirt, should be an asset on the dirt in the long run. Loose, easy, and repeatable right-handed swing, banged a double off the left field wall on day one and got off a handful of competitive hacks throughout the tournament, too. Also a follow on the mound, arm works clean with fluidity throughout, touching 82 mph with his fastball, while pitching in the upper-70s and low-80s. A high-follow prospect in the Illinois’ 2026 class that’s still far away from reaching his ceiling.

A high follow prospect in Missouri that’ll represent the ‘Show-Me’ state at the PBR Future Games at the end of July. 

Reign Williams OF / Lees Summit, MO / 2025

Athletic 5-foot-10, 185-pound left/left athlete with noticeable strength in the lower half. Showed loud tools at the MOKAN Open recently that translated to the field in our looks throughout this tournament - 6.89 60, 96.2 mph max exit velocity, 335 foot peak distance. Fast, physical left-handed swing, hard off the barrel and favors the pull-side. Continues to trend upward in the state’s 2025 class as the summer rolls on. 

Lukas Wilson SS / Staley, MO / 2024

Uncommitted and a top-20 prospect in Missouri’s 2024 class. 5-foot-9, 165-pound frame with strength in the lower half. Continues to get on base at a high rate, true top of the order type from the left side with minimal swing-and-miss that can set the table for an offense. Sure-handed defender that moves well at second base as well. A name-to-know uncommitted follow in Missouri’s soon-to-be senior class that does a little bit of everything. 

Andrew Winslow RHP / Triad, IL / 2025

Long, lanky, and loose-limbed 6-foot-6, 195-pound frame. Took the mound for Extreme Elite in a win on Thursday afternoon. Still developing complete feel for himself downhill, though has flashes of a truly limitless ceiling when his levers sync up. Also a high-end basketball player from southwestern Illinois. Fastball touched 89 early, played at 85-88 mph with carry at times. Turned to a 72-73 mph with occasional sweep from a lower arm angle as his primary secondary. One of the higher ceiling arms in the Illinois’ 2025 class. 

Tyler Wood OF / Lees Summit West, MO / 2025

Tennessee commit. 6-foot-3, 185-pounds with proportional strength and room to add more. Started on the mound in a win for the Royals Scout Team on Friday morning. Fastball played in the upper-80s early, touching 91 mph, from an athletic and intentful delivery. Spun a tighter slider at 78-79 mph, bended a 72-73 mph curveball with more depth for strikes, too. One of the premier prospects in Missouri’s 2025 class, slotted at No. 3 overall currently, and No. 79 nationally. 

Sam Wyrick SS / Helias Catholic , MO / 2024

One of the top uncommitted prospects in Missouri’s 2024 class, currently slotted at No. 41 overall. 6-foot, 190-pounds. Took the mound on Friday afternoon and dominated for US Nationals Midland 16U in a win. Easy, low-effort mover down the mound, repeated his delivery and stayed in line consistently. Fastball touched 89 early, pitched at 85-88 mph with backspin and carry up in the zone. Landed curveball with arch and depth for strikes, 71-73 mph. Also swings a heavy right-handed barrel. A two-way name to follow that’s headed into his senior season.
